How to Let Go of the Past and Be Happy
Something inside people resonates with the question, “Just how can I let go of yesteryear and be happy? ” It is just a feeling or an awareness that knows that there’s something significantly more than this world is showing us. There’s something within us that is preparing to burst and to shine.
Once we’ve had a glimmer of joy, there’s an expression in us of Wow, I like this glimpse. a course in miracles Why can’t this continually be what life is? Why can’t life continually be fun? And the clear answer of the Spirit is, “It’s, it can!” That is the fact, but we do need certainly to let go of past associations and let go of the familiar in order to open our hearts as much as something much greater than anything we have ever experienced on Earth.
How will you reach a situation of mind where you’re feeling certain that yesteryear is over; where you’re feeling that there’s nothing left from yesteryear that may haunt you or that may bring doubt to the mind anymore? It’s through guidance and trust.
The Holy Spirit may use time and the symbols in time to show you that there’s no time. He is able to use the symbols of the past—like words and anything in form—to inspire and to bless, and to provide you with the experience that you are free right now.

Once you let everything be reinterpreted by the Spirit, then you can certainly recall your darkest hours or memory with a gentle smile in your mind. You can think, Wow, it looks so different now with this higher interpretation. God, you’re with me most of the time. You’re there in most circumstance and every seeming situation beckoning me, “Appear here with me and notice it with me, come see my perspective on the world. Come start to see the gentleness, the laughter and the joy.”
This experience doesn’t apply to major things only—it is each and every day! We can let go of yesteryear and the familiar, learn to hear present moment guidance and be happy today!
